Stella Souza, 33, Hugo Pereira, 32, and their son, Sol, 7 months, took a day off this Tuesday (17) at Pipa beach when part of a cliff collapsed on them. The three died instantly. The family dog, who was with them, also died.
“They were very happy, a very happy family. Hugo was a wonderful man who took good care of Stella and Sol, they loved each other very much. They were people who only left happiness,” said Stella’s mother, Sânzia Maria.
“The family is destroyed. It was a fatality. No one could have expected that to happen. The two left very early, but left the conscience in each of those who remained that they lived well, enjoyed life and that we also know how to enjoy life. “said Éder Jofre, Stella’s cousin.

Hugo Pereira was from São Paulo and lived in Pipa for just over two years. His father arrived in Pipa on Tuesday night, but he did not want to speak to the press. Pedro Holanda, manager of the hotel where Hugo worked, mourned the death of his friend and said he was “a special soul”.
“Hugo was a spectacular human being, always with a smile on his face, high spirits, he was very happy to be a father. He was a very family guy, he loved animals, nature. He was an enlightened human being. We are dismayed , without understanding why all this is happening “, said Pedro.

Hugo was enjoying a day off at the beach with his wife, Stella Souza, the 7-month-old son and the family’s dog when the accident happened around noon.
Igor Caetano, a nautical tour entrepreneur, saw the accident and said that Hugo, Stella and their son were sitting near the cliff.
“There was still time for the mother to try to hold the child, which is why the adults were more hurt, because the mother was hugging him [o bebê].”
“We dug until we found the father, and then we found the mother and the child. The boy was still breathing. Coincidentally, a doctor was passing by at the time, she tried to revive the child, but there was no way,” said Igor .
Locals say the cliff is a risk for swimmers and often warn of the danger of accidents. As the tides fill and hit the cliff, its base is being eroded, which makes the upper part more vulnerable to collapse.
The Tibau do Sul City Hall was aware of the risks of the cliffs collapsing at Praia de Pipa. The dangers of the stretch had already been warned in recommendations made by the Federal Public Ministry of RN (MPF-RN). One of them caused the Municipality to hire a team of professionals to map the areas of greatest threat.
Cliffs are a type of landform formed by a steep or vertical slope, which usually ends at sea and is under the erosive action caused by water. Large cliffs are often called cliffs.
The City is evaluating the possibility of interdicting the place where the accident happened.
Pipa is a district of Tibau do Sul, which is about 100 km from Natal. In addition to the beaches, the place is known for cultural and gastronomic festivals.
